Visited on a Saturday night for dinner.Staff were excellent and food good. Spirit measures not so good--A Drambuie (25ML )£3,15 equates to 28 measures per bottle giving an income of £88.20-cost to HT not more than £20.--the saying rip-off comes to mind. It should be pointed that 25ml is an English measure--an Irish measure should be 35ml. No more drinking... More

Called in here for a late lunch, there were no tables free in the restaurant but we were happy to sit at a nice in the lounge at the window. There were Sunday papers to read.

Really good food! Worth a Michelin star. There are two good chef's. I've visited this place many times and every single time food is freshly made and so tasty. Starters are always as it says on menu. Cod is always tender, moist and in beautiful light batter. Steak is aways made as you like and I mean it. If you... More

Had tried this place not long after it opened and was very disappointed. After listening to so many people go on about it decided to go for lunch today. On arrival we were promptly shown a seat given menus and told about the specials on offer by a lovely waitress didn't notice a name badge but she was lovely. I... More

Visited Horatio Todd's this Sunday evening as wanted to try somewhere different for a change but were very disappointed with service and average food. Advertised veg with kids' meals wasn't provided and when raised with server, Emma, were told that as we didn't explicitly mention it when ordering she assumed that it wasn't wanted, implying we should have read out...

Went with friends for an early bird tea. Nice restaurant with parking at the rear, which isn't really advertised. The Menu was quite extensive and 3 courses were 17.95. The fish and chips was great with the obligatory mushy peas. Chicken wing starter with blue cheese dip was fiery and delicious. A good venue for a quick bite and a... More

We had dinner here for my daughter's birthday and we definitely made the right choice. The dining room is clean, spacious and has a down to earth atmosphere. The service was really good, attentive without being pushy. The food was all really yummy, well presented and the portions good. The 2 or 3 course option is very competetively priced. We... More

Nice place although very busy on a Friday and needs more staff behind the bar. A good selection of beers and spirits.

Dear DavidM132, Thank you for your kind comments regarding the bar and the range of drinks we offer. We always try to staff accordingly. However we do experience unexpectedly busy nights on occasion.
